It's offered as a rider to dental plans.

Mutual of Omaha has introduced dental and vision insurance insurance "to provide individuals a more holistic approach to health care coverage."

“The dental and vision coverage options we introduced this month are a direct result of what our customers told us would serve them well,” Jeff Ganow, Mutual of Omaha vice president and actuary, said in a press release. “Customers have counted on us as a Medicare supplement provider for more than 50 years. We hope these products can help round out coverage for our customers’ additional health care needs.”

The dental policy options – Mutual Dental Preferred and Mutual Dental Protection – offer various coverage levels, deductible and premium amounts. Dental coverage is available to individuals ages 19-99, and the vision insurance is available as an optional rider to a dental policy.

As of Oct. 7, the dental and vision products are available for customers to purchase through licensed agents and brokers in 23 states. For more information, visit mutualofomaha.com/dental-insurance.

When developing the new products, Mutual of Omaha surveyed current and potential customers to assess their needs and learn what types of dental and vision plans they would find valuable, according to the release.

Founded in 1909, Mutual of Omaha is a full-service, multi-line organization providing insurance, banking and financial products for individuals, businesses and groups throughout the U.S.
